Mistakes in baby feeding

1, missing the baby’s taste sensitive period

Every food that has not been eaten is fresh and curious for the baby, and they are not born with any prejudice about some foods.

Your baby’s taste and smell are most sensitive during the 6 months to 1 year period. Therefore, this period is the best time to add supplementary foods. By tasting various foods for the baby, let him experience the adaptation process from liquid food to semi-liquid food to solid food, which can promote his taste, smell and taste. It is easy to receive a variety of foods and tastes when the baby is added to the food supplement in a timely manner. The weaning will be smooth. In the process of adding supplementary food to the baby, if the mother sees the baby unwilling to eat or feels a little discomfort, she will stop feeding immediately, or even add supplement food to him, which will make the baby miss the taste and smell. And the optimal formation and development of the taste. Not only will the baby have difficulty in weaning in the future, but it may also cause him to suffer from typical anorexia in the future. If the mother can give him a taste of the food in the baby’s taste and sense of smell, he can cultivate his good taste and sense of smell and prevent him from picking food.

2, improper handling of the baby’s “partial eclipse”

At about 8 months, the baby has shown varying degrees of likes and dislikes to the food, which is the initial “partial eclipse” phenomenon. However, this partial eclipse of the baby is very naive, not permanent. What he doesn’t like at this month’s age, it is very likely that he will become very fond of eating next month. The partial eclipse of this month’s baby is not comparable to the partial eclipse of a bigger child. If the mother does not understand this, it is very easy to worry about the baby’s lack of nutrition, but this baby’s “partial eclipse” phenomenon is very concerned, very “real”, so that a tough attitude to try to change the baby, it will be in the baby The mind left a very bad impression, which made it difficult for him to accept this food in the future and form a true partial eclipse habit.

3, too much attention and worry about the baby’s nutritional  intake

Some mothers always arrange their diet for their baby according to their knowledge of nutrition. They never allow babies to choose food according to their own desires, thinking that this is the only way to ensure that their babies are properly nourished. But in fact, as long as the baby’s taste, smell and taste for food develops normally, normal babies can choose a healthy diet combination from the various foods they love. Although your baby’s appetite may change frequently, it is natural. As long as it is not overly influenced by human prejudice, in the long running, their diet is generally balanced. Therefore, it is not necessary for the mother to limit the baby too much. If you limit your baby’s diet too much, it will bring him too many bad eating experiences, which will lead to his partial eclipse and even anorexia. In the end, the nutritional intake is not balanced, which will have adverse effects on your baby’s health.

4, adding tonics for the baby

0-3 years old is the key period for baby development. In order to make the baby grow better, some mothers like to feed white fungus, longan, pollen, ginseng royal jelly and other supplements for the baby within 3 years old. In fact, the amount of protein, fat, and minerals required by the baby in these supplements is very low. The main ingredient is only carbohydrates, not how much nutrients we can bring to the baby. What is even more worrying is that ginseng royal jelly and pollen also contain certain hormones, which can make the baby’s bone epiphysis close in advance, causing them to be short in the future. If you don’t have special needs, don’t give your baby a supplement, and don’t blindly pursue expensive “rare food” to “care” your baby. If your baby is stunted, you should see your doctor early, and don’t have to feed them by some tonic food.

5, abuse the fortified food for the baby

The baby grows rapidly and has a high demand for various nutrients, but there is no natural food that can meet all of their nutritional needs individually. In order to meet the baby’s growth and development needs, it is necessary to add certain nutrients to some foods to supplement the baby’s lack of essential nutrients. These foods with certain nutrients are called fortified foods. Nutrients often added to children’s foods include lysine, iron, zinc, VD, VA, VB2, etc., which can speed up the growth and development of the baby, or prevent a certain nutrient deficiency. Many mothers often worry about the lack of certain nutrients, and often give their baby a variety of fortified foods, thinking that the more you eat, the better. In fact, fortified foods are not much better. Therefore, it is necessary to give your baby a fortified food with reasonable .

6, giving your baby too much protein intake

High-protein foods are mostly animal foods with high levels of cholesterol and saturated fatty acids. If you eat too much, even a young baby will cause damage to the arterial wall. Moreover, overeating high protein also produces a large number of metabolites that need to be excreted from the kidneys, making the baby’s delicate kidneys overburdened and easily impairing kidney function. What is most needed in the development of your baby’s brain tissue is sugar. These sugars are mainly taken from the staple food of each meal. If you eat too much protein and ignore the staple food, it will cause energy crisis in the metabolism of brain cells, thus affecting normal development. In addition, eating only fish and eating meat does not eat green vegetables, it can cause constipation, causing the baby to have a fever due to “getting angry”. Therefore, the baby’s three meals a day must be arranged in a variety of nutrients, not just protein intake.

7. Choose an inappropriate time to drink water for your baby.

Human gastrointestinal and other digestive organs will secrete various digestive juices during the time of eating, such as oral secretion of saliva, gastric secretion of pepsin and gastric juice. These digestive juices are mixed with the minced food to promote the digestion and absorption of nutrients in the food. However, if you drink water, it will dilute and dilute the digestive juice, and the activity of pepsin will be weakened, thus affecting the digestion and absorption of food. If your baby feels thirsty before meals, drink some boiling water or hot soup first, but don’t go to eat soon. It is best to go eat later.

8, give the baby too much soup

Amino acids in proteins are essential for growing babies because they are building tissues and organs that require large amounts of protein. If guided by the wrong concept, always give the baby soup without meat, even after the teeth are 2 years old, the soup is used as the main source of baby protein, which is actually a kind of sesame throwing watermelon. Scientific approach. It not only causes the baby to be anemia, but also causes other nutrient-deficient diseases such as zinc deficiency. Since zinc is stored in meat, egg and milk in the form of protein binding, it cannot be dissolved directly in the soup. Therefore, there is not much zinc in the soup, and the baby’s body can only consume a small amount of zinc.

Anemia and zinc deficiency can make your baby’s appetite low, especially if zinc deficiency can cause your baby’s taste to diminish, which may cause some babies to have anorexia. In this way, the baby enters a vicious cycle of malnutrition, which makes the body that is already lacking in nutrition more nutritious, and then becomes thinner and thinner, and grows slower, significantly behind the normal diet baby.
